The unexpected political events of 2016 – 2022 derail the joyous college trajectory for Hudson City School District Gen-Z Bangladeshi immigrants, propelling them to confront anti-immigrant sentiments, their conservative parents’ ideas of “The American Dream”, and the true cost of forbidden love.

For six years filmmakers Zuzka Kurtz and Geoffrey Hug follow the students as they bid farewell to their community and arrive in an unfamiliar world.

This screening is followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and documentary participants Jahed Miah, Mahmuda Alam, Siddique Ahmed and Jabin Ahmed.
